Dear New York, I hope you’re doing well I know a lot’s happen and you’ve been through hell – An Open Letter to NYC, Beastie Boys Yeah. I’m going to run it. There’s no need to preface this post with an explanation of what happened this past week and I’m not going to make any apologies […]
Guest post by Ceridwen, a.k.a. the Wife Only a few days left until my second marathon!

Tomorrow morning I’m running the Sunburst Marathon in South Bend, Indiana. I’m up way too late for a 6 am start, so this will be short and sweet. They’ve got six different events running tomorrow (in addition to the stroller-friendly family walk 5k tonight); the Marathon, a Half Marathon, a wheelchair Half, a 10k, a 5k, and a 5k walk. All six events start at the College Football Hall of Fame, and finish at the fifty yard line of Notre Dame Stadium.
We just got back from the Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon and Mini-Marathon Running Wild Expo. (Mouthful, eh?)
For those of you wondering why the Kentucky Derby has a marathon, it’s all part of the month long Kentucky Derby Festival including a golf tournament, a basketball classic, the largest fireworks display in the world, a balloon show, charity events out the wazoo, waterfront concerts, and all manor of other festivities that lead up to the Derby itself.
